Windows 7: Add logos to your Win7 MC Guide

Add logos to your Win7 MC Guide

I just discovered and love this app... Its called My Channel Logos. www.mychannellogos.com

It adds nice logos to your Guide in Windows 7 MC. It will automatically search for the proper logos, and the ones it cant find you can add in.

I love the ease of identification of channels now...

I used this with Vista, worked perfectly.
Tried it with Windows 7, failed, wouldn't place any Logo's in MC.

thanks..... i was being lazy and hoping to find logos that were already sized correctly for mychannellogo
Quote:
-Size
  • 42 px by 96 px
  • If your logo is not wide enough: Do not center it in a 96 pixel space. Cut the width down so it just fits the logo. No padding!
  • If your logo is not tall enough: Center the logo in a transparent 42 x 96 pixel background.

I'm missing some on mine too, mostly the less popular networks.

90% are there though, There's a search function at the home page

of that app too.
